Master of Applied Science Project (Part A) KLA709

Note:

This unit is classed as a restricted unit and available to Master of Applied Science students.

Introduction

In this unit students will, with assistance and supervision, develop skills associated with obtaining research funding. Students will develop a research proposal for a small project, such as would be submitted to a research agency. Skills will be developed in identifying relevant research topics, appropriate funding bodies and developing project budgets. The proposal will including background to the proposed research, aims and objectives, experimental methods and justification for their selection, expected outcomes and benefits, resources required and their cost, timelines, and how the results will be communicated.
